Pillars of Pack Leadership Academy


The Pillars of Pack Leadership Academy is a comprehensive online dog training course developed by renowned dog trainer Alyson Rodges.



The Pillars of Pack Leadership Academy is EXACTLY what you need if you want to live life with your dog in a safe, sane, and civilized way

I developed The Pillars of Pack Leadership Academy as a comprehensive online dog training course that you can begin immediately from the comfort of your own home. But my team and I are always just a phone call, email or Facebook message away to help you along on this amazing & fulfilling journey!

The Academy starts with the fundamentals…understanding your dog’s drives and your dog’s different states of mind. Trust me, to truly understand your dog and what motivates them, you need to know this information.


Naturally, all the basics of walking nicely on a loose-lead and basic obedience (“sit/wait”, “come”, “down”, “off”, “back” , “no” , “paws up” and working around distraction) are covered.Other essential areas covered in our program are potty training, kennel/crate training, chewing, jumping, barking, digging, and socialization with children in the house.

As your pooch becomes ready, additional items like treadmill, driving in cars, grooming—and doing it all in a calm, polite way are introduced.

Through it all, your pooch learns impulse control and adrenaline management—a trait most parents wish their teenagers had more of, HA!

The Academy then transitions into my Pillars of Pack Leadership which will teach you all about the 5 foundational concepts that are essential to living a wonderful life with your pup. Each concept is broken down into manageable blocks of information that real people, just like you, can implement into their real lives.


  • Establishing Effective Structure
  • Establishing Effective Rules
  • Purpose Driven Activities
  • Respect of Space
  • The Human Component

We also created a private Facebook group so that students of the Academy can share their stories and ask questions.

My team and I are here to help guide you along your Academy journey and beyond. I pop in on the Facebook group once a week to personally answer any of your questions – LIVE!

This is a level of commitment that you won’t find anywhere else.

The Pillars of Pack Leadership Academy is the next best thing to training AT Aly’s Acres in person!
